Overview

Did you know Nicholas of Myra lived in a time of Roman oppressive turmoil and persecution? Did you know he is counted as patron saint of sailors and archers as well as children? When his faith was outlawed and his people afflicted, Nicholas boldly stood against the tyranny in such a way that I call him "the Batman of 300AD." After a betrayal, this average Roman soldier finds himself left for dead, floating in the ice-cold Danube River to the far north of Rome. If not for the aid of a clandestine race of Earth-bound Angels, known as Elves by the Scandinavians, Nicholas would have been a name long forgotten. After uncovering the truth behind his betrayal, and of the stolen love back home in Lycia, Nicholas leaves the Realm and travels with the Nordic sailors, honing his skills as a warrior, and ventures home on a path for revenge.

His quest takes him to discover a far more sinister plot and brewing darkness in his homeland-one that plagues upon the innocence of youth-and the rushing river of destiny sweeps Nicholas upon a grand adventure culminating in the fulfillment of his destiny; to be the saint we now know as Santa Claus. Nicholas: The Fantastic Origin of Santa Claus written by Cody W Urban is the thrilling exploration into the legends and myths behind numerous Christmas traditions, from the Norse Yuletide to the Roman Sol Invictus, and a ride down the torrents of fate as a reluctant young man steps into the immortal shoes of the patron saint of children.

Meet the Author

Born and raised in southern California, Cody W Urban has always had a passion for storytelling. His earliest memories include writing stories and having his mom do the actual writing because he was too young to spell. After writing numerous short stories and unfinished books through his young life, he wrote one story that close friends encouraged him to make into a movie. Feeling inspired, he wrote his first screenplay and rallied his friends, family, and church into producing MY BEST FRIEND. After making two feature films with 7D Studios, Cody has graduated from California State University, Northridge with a BA in Cinema and Television Arts and continues to work and strive to be the best writer, editor, and director he can be.

After writing myriad screenplays, a particular one garnered special attention at a festival. It was liked by the judges so much, they sent it to an agency and before long, Cody had himself representation at The Brogan Agency. After a period of time, he felt it a wise decision to adapt the screenplay into a novel, and thus Nicholas: The Fantastic Origin of Santa Claus was written.

In 2008, he married Heather and the two of them actively involve themselves in their church and with their beloved dogs, Juneau and Bailey.
